Money isn’t everything. But having enough money can be the difference between worrying about the future and feeling secure. Too many Montanans don’t know enough about money -- about how to make it work as hard as they do. Monica J. Lindeen, Montana’s Commissioner of Securities and Insurance, would like to change that. We’ve teamed up with Montana State University Extension to encourage Montanans to take MSU Extension’s quick, free, online financial courses. And we’re sweetening the deal. If you complete ten courses, we’ll send you a certificate of completion and a $10 gift certificate.
The courses are part of MSU Extension’s “Solid Finances” program. It’s financial education for real life. The courses are presented by Montana’s leading financial experts. But you don’t have to be an expert to understand them -- and you don’t have to have a lot of time, either. Every course is under an hour. They are webinars that can be downloaded and watched at your convenience.
The university offers 29 on-line courses. You need take only 10 to get the certificate. The classes are varied and geared toward solving -- or avoiding -- real problems. They have titles like: What’s Your Credit Score and What Does it Mean or When Should I Claim Social Security Benefits. The best part is the cost: absolutely nothing.
Please contact our Investor Education Coordinator, Cindy Palmer, for more details and to submit your list of classes and get your certificate. She’s at CPalmer@mt.gov. Or you can get started right away by clicking the link below.
